Default Where is printer spool data going and why?

Hi,

I am debugging an issue for my product and it is important to me where
the printer spool data is going. All my machines are Windows 7.

When i give a print for a particular printer from one Windows 7
machine, the spool data goes to
C:\windows\system32\spool\printers.

On another Windows 7 machine the spool data goes to c:\windows
\system32\spool\servers\abcprint

Here "abcprint" is the name of the server i believe.

Another thing to note is that procmon traces show that the data going
into the spool\printers directory is something of the form
SPL49FE.tmp.

Where as the one going into the spool\servers directory is of the form
00025.SPL.


BottomLine: I want to know why the data goes to spool\printers in some
cases and spool\servers\servername in others even though the printer
is the same and i configure the printer from the same location.

Thanks for any help.

Regards.
